A little bit random

Today I am showing you the second card I made on (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day in an event hosted for Scandinavian scrapbookers. The challenge here was a photo of a layout by Skrapowisko. (If you like doing layouts, you need to see hers. They are superb!) I cannot seem to relocate this particular one on her website to show you, but I was inspired by her background and all the speech bubbles and text around the centre image. Also mostly pale colours.

I’ve used my Copic Markers to create the background, as well as to colour in the Ching-Chou Kuik image. You will find a list of all the colours at the bottom of the post as usual. All of the die cuts are from La-La Land Crafts. I’ve used sentiment stamps from MFT Stamps and Papirdesign.

Copics used: (background from top) BG72, V91, YG00, BV20, YR00, B000, RV00, G00, Y00, BV000, R00

A bit of turquoise

We have a new challenge up at Copic Marker Norge and this is my inspirational card for it. On the moodboard for this month I was inspired by the colours: turquoise and white with a hint of yellow, as well the decorations and flowers. The image I chose for this is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I do love getting to make a card using my favourite colours!

I’ve used papers by Maja Design and Bazzill, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a stamp from Noor Design to create the effect around the image which I used distress oxide ink on, a Happy Birthday stamp from My Favorite Things, and a border die from La-La Land Crafts.

Here you can see the card from a side on view. There are several elements put on foam pads to create a sense of dimension.

Here is a close-up of the flower arrangement

Winter hugs

It is time for some mid-way inspiration at Copic Marker Norge and this is my contribution. We are trying something new for our challenges: playing with moodboards! Winter and chill and forest and snow is how I interpreted the moodboard.

I decided on a Ching-Chou Kuik image which I coloured in with Copics. The papers are Maja Design and I think they are my all time favourites. I love them!

Another photo from a different angle where it is easier to see the layers.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E44, E47, (trees) YG61, YG63, YG67, G99, (hat) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, E20, E22

Autumn mushroom

On this card I’ve had fun playing with distress oxide inks! They were a recent purchase and I’ve never played with distress inks to make backgrounds before, so it was just to give it a go really. I was playing around with a yellow and an orange shade, splashed on some water and cut out a strip. Completely unintentionally it ended up being the starting point of a new card!

I coloured the image, a stamp by Ching-Chou Kuik, with Copics makers a while ago, but hadn’t made it into a card as I couldn’t seem to decide on the design. I cut it out by hand and then glued it onto the card. Then I cut out some brown card stock using a Papirdesign die to make the sentiment.

Copics used (probably… I can’t find where I wrote them down so this is a semi-guess): (red) R22, R24, R27, R29, R89, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (grey) W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, (hair, unsure..) possibly the E50s, (green, unsure, but possibly) YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67

Mermaid; photo inspiration challenge

It’s the middle of May already! How did that happen?! hmm.. Oh well, it does mean it’s time for another challenge at Copic Marker Norge, and this time we have a photo inspiration challenge.

This is the card I made. I decided on a mermaid to represent the ocean and then I tried to mostly stick to the colours used on the inspirational photo. The image I used is by Ching-Chou Kuik and one of the very first mermaids I’ve ever coloured! Various other bits are by Papermania, Wild Orchid Crafts and Martha Stewart. The image is obviously coloured with Copics.

Here is another view of the card:
